(Everett writes, As a little kid, I had a hard time with the realization that inanimate objects didnt have feelings or thoughts. I remember being on the verge of tears, standing there in the bathroom, as my mom tried to make me understand that the bathroom cabinet wasnt going to be hurt if I closed it too hard. I thought of the bathroom cabinet as one of my friends. Maybe I was confused because I thought of my father as a piece of furniture.) First, the author lost his father to heart failure, and then - in a staggeringly short period of time - his sister to schizophrenia and suicide and his mother to cancer.

The author drew upon the relentless tragedies in his life for inspiration in writing highly acclaimed music with his indie rock group, the Eels. Yet this is much more than a musicians tale. A true gem of a memoir, Everetts story is a rich and poignant narrative on coming of age, love, death, and the creative vision.
